powerless. i think the people in michigan really node -- need a hand. we need work, we want work. that's all. we don't want a handout. we want jobs. >> in michigan on monday, mr. obama said he's prepared to fight for his new job growth proposals, defend organized labor and take steps to restore america's middle class. he also expressed hope for the future of detroit. >> it's like the commercial says. this is a city that's been to heck and back. and while there are a lot of challenges here, i see a city that's coming back. you ask somebody here if times are tough, they'll say, yeah, it's tough but we're tougher. look at what we're doing to overcome. look at what we're doing to rebuild and re-invent and redefine what it means to live in this great city. >> well, in a sign that president obama's optimism may not be for nothing, a general motors plan to once produce gas-guzzlie ining sedans has be reborn as the only automobile factor of its kind in the united states. casey wian has more from o'ryan, michigan. >> reporter: brad was working at a gm plan in the wisconsin that was about to close in

to congress. rick from michigan, republican. caller: your guests represent two different points of view. i do not want one guy to speak to me at all. the one problem in the government is the federal reserve. we have been under the thumb of the reserve from 1913. these people are running the economy. obama cannot do anything. the congress has given up their constitutional responsibility. we need to redo this whole thing. the system is broke. we pay a gasoline tax. that is supposed to pay all the road costs. we're paying too much tax as it is. we need to eliminate the federal income tax. the others need to be looked at. we have to look at the monetary system. if you print another $447 billion -- we are broke. host: does get reaction. what did you think about his comments? -- let's get reaction. guest: he doesn't want me to talk because i do not agree with this point of view. one of the big problems of the federal reserve is that it is not doing as much as it could be doing to fight the recession. you have ben bernanke doing a lot of pretty aggressive moves. he has not done big quantitative easi
him. the other straw poll was in michigan. mitt romney blew everyone away there with 51% of the vote. perry got just 17%. romney, by the way, is from michigan and he won the state's primary in 2008. >>> two americans will be waking up in the united states this morning after they were freed in iran. josh fattal and shane bauer stepped off a plane in new york. they were arrested in iran in 2009 after allegedly hiking over the border from iraq. they told reporters they were hostages, not prisoners. held in almost complete isolation. >> from the very start the only reason we have been held hostage is because we are american. >> every time we complained about our conditions, the guards would immediately remind us of comparable conditions at guantanamo bay, remind us of cia prisons in other parts of the world and conditions iranians experience in prisons in u.s. >> the two talked about how they heard the screams of other inmates and what they called a total sham of a trial. >>> let's head to atlanta now and economic in with meteorologist reynolds wolf is in today. >> you never know exactly
. that could be tragic. >> and of course perry will not win wisconsin or minnesota. he won't win michigan. he wouldn't win pennsylvania. he wouldn't win new jersey. he wouldn't win any of these swing states. >> he's not a blue state guy. no doubt about it. >> all right. mike murphy, stay with us. george pataki -- >> thank you. >> thank you so much for being here. come back soon if you will. >> sure will. >> all right. >> he's in the green room. >> we have standing by former president alvero rebay of colombia to discuss this week's united nations summit. also joining him the president of georgia and nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. up next former governor jennifer granholm and her husband with their new book. also "the washington post" eugene robinson. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks.

of the two top front-runners left florida to be in michigan where there is a g.o.p. gathering for the remainder of this weekend. perry arrived there a short while ago. mr. romney got there last night after having spent the day in indiana. so it's a particulay important straw poll, too. there is only two that matter in the aggregate for presidential politics. one in iowa, we saw that. michele bachmann won it but hasn't been able to capitalize on the victory. the florida straw poll, this one is the fifth presidential cycle where this convention is taking place. has been indicator in the past, the people that won the straw polls went on to be president. ronald reagan, george h. bush were all winners. they won the straw poll and ended up in the white house. a lot is riding on this and the perry campaign is looking for a big win. you're right about that. romney is not organizing. jon huntsman is ignoring it. the candidates that took part in the fox news debate will be on the ballot with the exception of gary johnson, the new mexico governor who simply didn't participate. >> uma: it
obama will spend his labor day in michigan a state hard hit by employment. in his annual address, the president is expected to preview his jobs plan to union workers and their families in detroit. he'll unveil his entire plan in a speech on thursday night. the administration says it will lay out a series of steps that congress could act upon, including transportation and infrastructure initiatives. initiatives to help homeowners and tax breaks to support new hires. >> if you are not hiring, you're unpatriotic according to the international brotherhood of teamers james hoffa. on the state of the union, hoffa called apple, general electric and pfizer unpatriotic for opening factories and stores overseas instead of investing in employment right here in the united states. he said, big companies have a responsibility to get americans back to work and if they aren't doing that, president obama should call them out. >> i think the president should challenge the patriotism of these american corporations that are sitting on the sidelines saying why do we have high unemployment but i'm not
wants to put romney away. >> we also had another straw poll from michigan this morning and i think it was 50% -- more than 50% here. 50.9%. the mackinaw straw poll, rick perry 16.8%. mitt romney runs away with it now. he's basically the hometown boy in michigan. his father was governor there and this is activist republicans, romney's a very familiar name. is there anything we should read into any of these straw polls? >> you don't want to overinterpret straw polls. 600 or 700 people in michigan voting in that, 400 or 500 in florida. the races continue to be unsettled. i think what we've learned this weekend is that there's going to be an extended fight between mitt romney and rick perry. they both have some strength. they both have a considerable amount of money, we think, the ability to raise money. and neither of them have closed the deal. that's what i take away from this weekend. >> mitt romney has been an incredibly lucky candidate. when he was coasting along as the front-runner, in the spring and summer the other candidates didn't want to engage too much with one another. the
to leave his family or what he pays in taxes. host: michael from michigan, the president calling for a tax hike for those who make more than $1 million in the year. what do you think? caller: i think it is about time. steve, i want to tell you about an incident i had. during alcor's campaign, i gave $1,000 to the primary, $1,000 for the general, and $200 for the recant. i was immediately audited because i'm self-employed. since then, i actually dropped off giving donations over. a couple of years later, it happened again in the next cycle. they had people from the irs at threatening me and i paid it. and the following year, she said that i had paid my taxes twice. i will tell you after the arrogance of power, the story of richard nixon and how the irs was used against democratic contributors, and the democratic party should understand that. their contributors are being targeted by the irs. host: another comment from our twitter page. next is how joining us from albany, new york on the independent line. caller: i would first like to -- can you hear me? host: we sure can. caller: no one like
chairman from michigan. >> thank you. in 2009, solyndra was the first to receive a d.o.e. eight loans funded by stimulus dollars. it is a model for how the government's venture capital program and green technology should work. they have filed for bankruptcy. we are starting to look at d.o.e. loan guarantee program. some questioned the basis for this investigation. after wrangling to produce relevant documents, the committee was forced to submit a subpoena. i think this shows the committee was more than justify it in scrutiny of the deal. pursuant to our functions, we have a responsibility to pursue answers regarding the use of taxpayer money. this raises several questions about whether the administration did everything it could to protect dollars. why did the administration think solyndra was such a good bet and push ahead to provide a solyndra guaranteed this year? why did d.o.e. allow the government to be subordinated to the private investors and a violation of the log? i look forward to the testimony. i want to know what the failure means for the loan guarantee program. is it the t
poll result. the other one that came out this weekend, michigan, and mitt romney is at the top. no surprise here. listen, romney was born in michigan. his father a former governor there. very popular. romney won the primary there back in 2008. he was expected to win. but perry did go up to michigan and campaign and he was a distant second. for perry, i think a lot of people are saying that those uneven debate performances, especially last week and the attacks on rick perry over his stance on illegal immigration, may be taking a toll. one other thing from the debates or from the straw polls, michele bachmann nowhere to be seen near the top. remember she won the straw poll in iowa in august. but she finished very low down in both of these straw polls. one thing about those, they are important. they are a gauge or a test or a barometer of a campaign with a lot of activists. they are not the end all and be all. if they were, herman cain or ron paul would be the nominee, and nobody thinks that is very likely, kyra. >> mitt romney going to meet with donald trump today. what is it abo
, president of investment timing consultants. he joins us from troy, michigan. nice to see you. back back to the program. >> thank you, tom, great to see you. >> tom: why so bearish? you describe yourself as extremely bearish? why? >> well, i'm looking at, say, the next three or four years. i think, first of all, where we are now, the combination of economic stagnation and government austerity is not really a pill for a better economy. we have shifting demographics with people-- baby boomers are getting older. housing to me doesn't look like it's fixed yet. the employment levels look like they're going to get worse, unemployment levels and we see what the fed is doing. they basically told us we're giving you a free pass on interest rates the next couple of years, that combined with what's going on in europe the last couple of days i think is a real testimony to the issues and problems going on, in a global economy. these are not things that happen when the economy is doing well. these are things that-- this continued facilitation of money and money being thrown at everything it try to fix
. i gave this speech at the speech contest down and the capital of michigan, in east lansing. it was a speech exposing the private organizations in the u.s. could still discriminate on the basis of race. this was in the early 1970's. you could still have caucasian one -- the elks club was whites only. a lot of these men's groups were whites only groups. i just thought that was wrong. so i give a speech about it. the next thing i knew, it was on the associated press and on the evening news and national networks that this 17-year-old was speaking out against racism in private clubs. and the whole thing's sort of snowballed. by the next year, there were lawsuits and bills introduced in congress. and these private groups all have to change their ways and they could no longer be whites only organizations. and that was just, i was not the only one doing this, but it was a big push that started when i gave the speech in east lansing, michigan. a dangerous lesson to teach a teenager that just by writing down three pages of paper or what i wanted to say have this impact. again, i am g
been very useful to democrats in michigan. in the auto industry. so, initially, you have this sort of sense of acquiescence by democrats that, all right, we don't normally offset emergency funding, but to get this through and to avoid another big fight, we're going to do it. but then democrats seemed to sense an opening. there was a newly combative attitude coming out of the white house thaw referred to earlier, and they decided to hold the line on their troops, and they voted against the c.r. in the house, sending the original, in the original vote it we want down to defeat. republicans rallied. they made cosmetic changed to get their people on board. and then the senate, which had been expected to sort of swallow whatever came over from the house, decide that had they would get their back up and that they would block, which they did. so now we're supposed to have a vote on the democrat i go version, which provides extra money in disaster relief without cutting the loan program or the other things that republicans threw in, but that's expected to fail as well. so over the weekend,
's already another case pending in the supreme court. that is one that came out of michigan, the sixth circuit court of appeals, which said the obama care is fine, they upheld the law. so now you have potentially two cases. it would seem very likely then that the supreme court would take the case up this term. >> does it matter which case they take up? i mean, i guess it matters in the case of do you defend or do you go against the one decision or defend what are the court rulings. >> my guess is that the supreme court would take both of them and do what they call consolidating them. in other words, sort of roll them all up into one big ball and say let's look at both decisions here. now, by the way, we're assuming that the supreme court would take the case. let me just say -- >> why wouldn't they? >> there are other cases pending. there's one in washington in the federal circuit. there's sort of a late to the party issue here, which is is the way to look at this say it's a tax and if p there is a tax, there's a federal law that says you can't challenge a law that would -- >> delay to
